    Mainly because they had the Army of the "People" drive Tanks over innocent young civilians who were sleeping in their tents. They also have made a large number of their citizens who were there disappear? The Govt would prefer that the people of China dont hear about the event!!!!!

    The Chinese government is designed around the idea that it is "for the people, and a friend of the people" under the guise of a communist government. They don't want to draw attention to anything that could give the notion that they are not a friend or to what these pro-democracy protesters were fighting for. They want to make sure the protesters cause gets buried in time and not turned into martyrs.

    Tyrannical dictatorships lie. It's what they do to cover up their crimes.

      Yes, indeed. Examples are in the press nearly every day.
